Howdy from Tomball, TX (near Houston)

Super excited to start our SquareFoot garden soon to feed my husband and our 10 month old baby girl. Just need to figure out how much to plant.

glad you\'re here Jazzbone42! Can almost guarantee that however many boxes you decide on it will not be enough - it is truly addictive once you get started!

Hi jazzbone42, welcome to the forum.

My estimates may or may not work for your family, but I feed my family (2 adults + 1 senior) from 235 square feet. The only thing I don't grow is corn. Almost everything else comes from the garden.

I'm still learning how to estimate exactly what we need, so I sometimes have too much of one thing and not enough of another, but we have plenty to go around and I only need to buy fill-in's occasionally.

Hope this helps,
Gloria

Imagine my surprise to see a post on here from someone in Tomball. I have a Magnolia address but I'm closer to Tomball, and even attend Tomball LSCS. Smile I'm just starting getting into the SFG but plan on taking the certification course soon and would be glad to help you out as soon as I do. Smile My wife and I are expecting our first child in early February of this year, so it seems we're not too far behind you in that, either. lol. Happy gardening!

I started SFG almost 3yrs ago w/ the same family numbers. We limited finances and being new to gardening period, we did somewhat small scale w/ a 2x12 and 2 2x3's w/ trellis along half of it. SFG is the easiest method I've researched and we were able to have an abundance even w/ rookie mistakes. Welcome to the addiction! Looking forward to hearing about your garden.
glad you\'re here
